Those of you who can afford to buy organic, or even just buy fresh produce: please do.
The more healthy food we buy, the more in demand it becomes, the cheaper it will be.
The cheaper it is, the more people in poverty will be able to afford healthy food, the more kids won’t grow up obese, the more adults won’t be trapped in a cycle.
Every time you buy something, you cast a vote for it to be in supply, to be produced more, to be cheaper.
